With great warmth as an outer layer on cool days, as well as the breathability required when worn under a shell or thermal jacket, the Puro 3 long sleeve cycling jersey improves the thermal capabilities over the second generation version. The Warmer thermal fleece fabric is, even warmer, and is used on the front and sleeves for optimal effectiveness. The 100% polyester utilizes the brushed inner surface to trap warm air, as well as ease moisture away from the skin.
This is a form fit, but forgivingly so, with a semi-aggressive cut and styling and enough soft stretch for overall comfort. It must be form-fitting to be effective as a layering piece to sit cleanly under a shell as well as transport moisture. It is cycling cut, low in the front, long in the rear for coverage, and carries a pro-style 3-pocket structure in the rear with a deep center and slash side pockets for easier access while riding. The neck is soft and of moderate height, not the taller Gabba style, which offers warmth, but plays more nicely with a jacket that has a collar. The easy sliding YKK Vislon zipper is shielded from the neck by a flap. The longer sleeves and wrists offer greater coverage but taper nicely for cleaner integration with gloves. The Puro 3 makes it's mark as a standalone piece with highly effective, larger reflectivity panels on the chest are complemented by panels below rear pockets. With thermal versatility, great features, simple aesthetics and awesome price, the Puro 3 will easily outsell it's best selling predecessors.
